Very nice. That Ebony is just beautiful in contrast to the maple. That was a real neat pattern with the stagger around the bowl. Do you have a good source for Ebony?

Wonderful bowl. Like the pinwheel design when viewed from the top. Great job on the spacing of the steps.

Keep it up.

Absolutely lovely! I wish I had the patience (and tools) to make segmented bowls. Very nice piece.

Love the high contrast of the Ebony and Maple, and the spiral layout of the layers. Very nice. You are lucky to have a source for the Ebony.

I was curious about the notations on the bottom layers in the last picture.
